Why do you keep blowing fuses for your heater on your 1991 cavalier you have no heat and no blower and the car overheats after about a half an hour?

I would replace the thermostat, it's a cheap part and could explain the overheating, also is your fan running? If it won;t kick on then there is the overheating prob. Might just be a relay or fuse. You might be blowing fuses because of a short in the heater control pannel. I had to replace it on my 94. It cost about $30 dollars from the junk yard and solved my problems. I would start with these few simple fixes. Hope they help, if not, take it to a garage that offers free estimates, then fix the problems they find. I do that sometimes also. Replace the Thermostat.

You probably have a shorted wire going to the motor or switch. You'll have trace the wires and find the damaged section.

Blown fuse, defective blower motor, or defective blower motor resistor pack.

If the heater is blowing the fuse when the blower is turned on, I would suspect the blower motor is defective or locked up. If the A/C is blowing a fuse, suspect a bad clutch, or locked up compressor.

There might be a bad fuse causing the heater to not work. Check the fuses if they are all ok you may have a bad blower motor. when you turn the heater on and no air is blowing then it is your blower motor.

Heater blower motor is defective and locked up, or possible short in the wiring.

Blown fuse, defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack, Defective Blower Motor, or Defective Blower Motor speed control switch.

Check the fuses.If not the fuse, test the resistor down by the blower motor.

try replaceing the switch that controls the low to high for heater It's gonna be the blower motor resistor (near the blower motor).

There is an electrical short to ground in the fan switch or in the blower motor itself.

Blower motor, resistor, wiring or control problem are common causes

No, I have a 1998 Cavalier and it does not have a cabin filter. You can take off the 3 bolts off the heater blower and remove any leaves or debris.

Ok..I figured it out. Turns out the rear defroster is the problem. When I unplugged it from the back windshield, blower/heater works great!! So...to all those out there..if your blower motor blows fuses...check the blower motor first...then the HVAC and heater fuses, then rear defroster if you have a cavalier!

mor vehicle info would help, but blower motor can be shot without blowing fuse

User Avatar

sounds like the head gasket ...same thing just happened in my 97 cavalier

Under hood fuse panel box. It is labled "Cooling Fan". To easily check it,swap it out with the "heater blower fan" relay and see if the heater blower works. Both relay's are made the same.

Beause there is probably a short/bad connection in the switch, or the blower motor itself
